    • B.

      Cicero

    • C.

    Explanation
    Cinna is the correct answer because in William Shakespeare's play "Julius Caesar," there is a character named Cinna who is mistaken for a conspirator by the angry mob.

      Publius

    • B.

      Popillus

    B. Popillus
    Explanation
    In Act 3 of "Julius Caesar," besides the conspirators, Portia, and Artemidorus, it is suggested that Popillius Lena might be aware of the conspirators' plan. This is inferred from the scene where he approaches Caesar at the Senate and speaks to him, causing some concern among the conspirators. Popillius Lena wishes Caesar well and mentions he hopes his "enterprise today may thrive," which leads the conspirators to worry that their plot has been discovered. However, the play does not explicitly state that Popillius knows all the details of the plan, only implying his possible awareness through his cryptic message to Caesar.

    Explanation
    Caesar compares himself to Mount Olympus. Mount Olympus is the highest mountain in Greece and in Greek mythology, it was considered the dwelling place of the gods. By comparing himself to Mount Olympus, Caesar is emphasizing his own greatness and power, implying that he is like a god among men. This comparison highlights Caesar's arrogance and belief in his own divinity.

      Pulpit

    Explanation
    The Plebeians gather in the Forum for Caesar's funeral. The Forum was a public square in ancient Rome where various activities took place, including political discussions, commercial transactions, and public gatherings. It was a central location for the citizens to come together and express their opinions and grievances. Therefore, it is logical that the Plebeians would gather in the Forum to mourn and pay their respects to Caesar during his funeral.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Antony honestly hates Caesar" implies that Antony genuinely dislikes Caesar.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement states that Octavius, an enemy of Caesar, is on his way to Rome.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Among the conspirators involved in the assassination of Caesar, Trebonius is the only one who did not physically stab Caesar. This statement implies that while the other conspirators were directly involved in the act of stabbing Caesar, Trebonius had a different role or did not participate in the actual stabbing.

    Rate this question:

    In this context, the statement "Antony shook the conspirators' bloody hands" is a factual statement. It implies that Antony, presumably a character in a story or historical event, physically shook hands with the conspirators after they had committed some violent act, resulting in their hands being bloody. Since this statement accurately describes an action that took place, the correct answer is "True."
